9/11 has been ended in iraq. and all of those variables factor into decisions about how we mark this day as americans. but also how our leaders or our would be leaders mark it. how we commemorate 9/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thing he's been stay save saying on t

is when then-president george w. bush ordered the u.s.-led invasion of iraq, march 2003. it was also the month when it was ordered that the flag-draped coffins of american service members killed abroad could not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the follo

re-election and talking about his record and everything from ending the war in iraq to again, health care and also this idea that he's going to fight for the middle class. it's not really a new theme, but that's what they plan to continue hammering home. this idea that he's going to look out for everyday people unlike the republican ticket. one thing they did say is this is going to be a working convention. that's how they described it and they'll work on getting people registered to work and knock on doors, canvass and in doing so, earn a ticket to fill that huge stadium that he's going to be speak at. so we don't have too much of a preview of the speech and we'll try to contain and make the case that he's the one that will give him more time to keep the economy back on track, fred. >> athena jones. thanks so much in urbandale. we'll take the president live when he arrives there in iowa. >>> let's talk about the democratic national convention which starts tuesday, charlotte, north carolina. that's the place right there. some of the high-profile speakers include the first lady, forme
and politics is like throwing gas on a fire, and nowhere is that truer right now than in iraq. the iraqi vice president has been sentenced to death on charges of running death squads. this is the current one, not sadd saddam's, the current one. now, he in turn is accusing the prime minister, the current one, al maliki of carrying out a political vendetta. the vice president is a prominent sunni muslim. al maliki is a shiite. i think you get the picture here. that vp is in exile in turkey. today he declared his innocence. >> i totally reject and will never recognize the unjust, the politically motivated verdict, which was expected from the outset of the trial. >> coinciding with the verdict, a wave of bombings. look at pictures. they are becoming familiar elsewhere. they were up familiar at one time. this time more than 90 people wounded -- 90 people killed and 300 wounded aacrocross the coun. sunni insurgents belonging to al qaeda in iraq claiming responsibility. you might sum this up in one word. mess. ivan watson is monitoring the developments from istanbul. last i checked the americans spe
that was made by a relatively unknown movie producer. demonstrators firing their guns in iraq setting at least two police cars on fire near the u.s. embassy. it comes a day after four american soldiers were killed on an american base in afghanistan by insurgents who were dressed as american military members. kabul, karachi, pakistan the two main hot spots this morning. more from pakistan just ahead. first to anna coren live in cable for us. what's happening? >> soledad, there were protests on the street, as you say, not far from the u.s. embassy here in kabul. about 300 protesters attacked police and 15 officers were injured, including the commander. they burnt two police cars, along with a bunch of tires, and we approached the scene. however there were reports that guns were being fired and that they were attacking westerners. we had to keep at bay. certainly that violence that we've seen across the muslim world has finally spread to afghanistan. the government has really tried to keep a lid on it by banning youtube so that people couldn't view that inflammatory video. but as we saw today, th
: in 2007, the u.s. military recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. and when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was kind of an unexpected thing to find. and so historically, libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them? do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there is sort of umbrella group, according to the former libyan jihadist called ansar al sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who are taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, been
to the fruit vendor in tunisia who set himself on fire to the decision by george w. bush to attack iraq in the wake of 9/11. go in, overthrow a dictator, turn the country over to the people and presto. well, violence continues in iraq and people die there everyday. egypt's now in the hands of the muslim brotherhood. mubarak's gone. they had elections there. and yesterday violent mobs assaulted the u.s. embassy compound. in libya moammar gadhafi's gone. the u.s. ambassador and three other people are dead because some terrorists in that country didn't like a movie critical of islam. syria's become a slaughter house murdering the civilian population at will. iran continues the march toward nuclear weapons. i don't want to even think what might happen if they get them. and al qaeda is busy reconstitutes itself in pakistan and half a dozen other countries. the song writer who wrote the phrase, wishing won't make it so, spot-on. and anybody who thinks the middle east is suddenly going to transform itself into a peaceful civilization where majority rules, they just haven't been reading the his
of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in may of 2008, president bush went beyond just offering support. after an american soldier used a koran for target practice, president bush actually apologized to iraqi prime minister nouri al maliki. >> he apologized for that in the sense the that he said, we take it very seriously, we were concerned about their reaction, we wanted them to know that the president knew that this was wrong and that the commanders in the field had publicly reprimanded the soldier and removed him from iraq. >> this was always one of the most admirable dimensions of the bush administration. and a real achievement. after 9/11, it was entirely possible that the country could have lapsed into anti-muslim sentiment. the bush administration legitimately fought to keep that from happening, and they largely succeeded. let's turn to congressman keith ellison, who was also the first muslim member of congress. congressman, good to have you here tonight. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> the bush administration understood the value of diplomacy in the muslim world, in particular,
years ago, i was leaving for iraq. i asked the delegates and american people to be there for my dad and they were, but really what i am going to talk about tonight is how he has been there for them, how he has been an incredible, exceptional leader in this country, a partner with the president. >> you served a year in iraq even as your dad was vice president. >> that's right. in fact, i will talk about him visiting iraq when i was there fourth of july 2009. >> you were with delaware national guard? >> i was. i'll give you a preview. he did a naturalization ceremony. whether they're in a federal district courthouse in america or even move moving in iraq. you see people put on our uniform, put their name on their chest and u.s. army and fight for a country they're not even citizens of. >> have you been talking to your dad about what he will say during the 9:00 p.m. eastern hour tonight? >> he is going to talk about what an exceptional commander in chief the president has been, how he has a bird's eye view, a partnership with this president. look, there's no one that's been closer to t
to end the war in iraq. and he won't tell us how he'll end the war in afghanistan. well, i have and i will. and while my opponent would spend more money some military hardware that our joint chiefs don't even want, i will use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding roads and bridges and schools and runways, because after two wars, that have cost us thousands of lives and over a trillion dollars, it's time to do some nation building right here at home. you can choose a future where we reduce our deficit without sticking it to the middle class. independent experts say that my plan would cut our deficit by $4 trillion. and last summer i worked with republicans in congress to cut a billion in spending because those of us who believe government could be a force for good should work harder than anyone to reform it so it's leaner and more efficient and more responsive to the american people. i want to reform the tax code so that simple, fair and ask the wealthiest households to pay tax on incomes over $250,000. the same rate
. and it is beyond cairo tonight. anti-u.s. demonstrators clashed in front of u.s. embassies, in israel, sudan, iraq, iran and among muslims in kashmir. there's a call in iran for nationwide rallies tomorrow. it appears to be a backlash at least in part from a low budget anti-islamic film which was made in the united states, first posted on youtube in july and recently publicized in the middle east. here's what we're also learning tonight. federal officials say the filmmaker's name is nakoul nakoula basseley nakoula. that name is very important and much more and why it matters so much later. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statement denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they have quickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and
. this is the president who brought osama bin laden to justice, who ended the war in iraq, and is ending the war in afghanistan. this is the president who ended don't ask, don't tell, so that love of country, not one another, made it equal pay of the law of the land. this is the president who saved the american auto industry from going under, the american financial industry from self destruction. the american economy from full-blown depression, who added 4.5 million private sector jobs in the last two and a half years. more than in george bush's eight years in office. my friends, the list of accomplishments is long, impressive and barely told. and even more impressive when you consider that congressional republicans have made obstruction itself the centerpiece of their governing strategy. with a record like that, and a vision that hopeful and powerful, i for one will not stand by and let him be bullied out of office. and neither should you. i want you to be clear. what is at stake is real. it is real. the orchard gardens elementary school in boston was in trouble. its record was poor. its spirit
